Category: Wudu with Sea Water
Wudu with Sea Water ~ It is permissible to perform Wudu` using sea water, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Its water is ritually pure and its dead are lawful.” There is no difference in this, whether you have (Part No. 5; Page No. 75) fresh water available to perform Wudu’ with or not. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
You have to do wudu using water from whatever is around you of the river or sea. The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) was asked about doing wudu from the sea and he said: “Its water is a means of purification and its dead meat recovered from it is permissible .” So, praise be to Allah, if you took a dip in the sea to cool off or to remove dirt and the like, it is not sufficient; rather you have to do wudu.
